Listening to the Four Tops ‘I’ll Be There’ whilst I type this, talk about motivation boosting! My fingers can’t keep up with me! I was already excited to post about my Sausage Casserole (a huge plate-licking winner in our family) but the Four Tops have taken it to the next level!

Calm yourself dear, RIGHT! Sausage Casserole. This recipe is made super fantastic by the fact that it’s so easy to do, I love recipes where you thrown things into a casserole dish give it a stir and cook it for hours enjoying the delicious smells emanating from your kitchen. I had my parents over for Sunday dinner and decided to break from the norm and serve the family this casserole with super creamy mash potato and veggies. My husband made the mash, or rather I mashed, he added nearly a whole pack of butter, and ample salt and pepper. In his world, this means that HE made dinner – bless him! … in that case, this is how he made the casserole – apparently!

Ingredients
3 packs of GF sausages (18)
1 Knorr beef stock pot
1 tin of baked beans
2 tins of tomatoes/passata
3tbsp tomato puree
1tsp sage
200ml red wine

Method

  1. Brown off sausages first in the casserole dish or in a separate frying pan (separate pan will reduce fat content)
  2. Throw all the other ingredients into the pot give it a mix and pop into the oven on Gas 3/170C/325F for approx 3hrs

QUICK VERSION: you can do this on Gas 5 for an hour or less but the sausages will not taste the same, try the longer version, it’s worth it I promise!
